  • A Look at the Zendesk S-1 (IPO)

    I thought I’d take a quick read of the Zendesk S-1 today, so here are my real-time notes on so doing.  Before diving in, let me provide a quick pointer to David Cummings’ summary of the same. My notes: 40,000 customers in 140 countries 2012 revenues of $38.2M 2013 revenues of $72.0M, 88% growth 41% of revenues from international.  (High for a SaaS company at this size, but makes sense given their roots.) Net loss of $24.4M and $22.6M in 2012 and 2013, -30% net loss in 2013 Zendesk approach:  beautifully simple, omni-channel, affordable, natively mobile, cloud-based, open,…

    I’m not a gadget guy but every once in awhile, something does turn my head.  Google Glass falls into this category.  Yes, the first wave of people that have them look pretty ridiculous. At an Alfresco event I had the opportunity to try them on and see how they worked.  Awkward, yes.  But then I started thinking. After an initial use, I can’t wait until the next generation of apps are ready to really advance the impact.  What if you could Google your house or car or office to find stuff.  Lost your keys, “OK, Glass… where are my keys?” and the room pops up in…

    IT should be run as a business, so says Gaurav Rewari, founder and CEO of Numerify, a cloud-based analytical applications company that comes out of stealth today. And IT is a business that is badly in need of management, especially as on-premise applications move to the cloud. “We’re in the midst of a great migration,” said Rewari.

    In business we have a sad tendency to copy success blindly. I remember the first time I read about this I didn’t even understand what I was reading: “Nothing in business is so remarkable as the conflicting variety of success formulas offered by its numerous practitioners and professors.  And if, in the case of practitioners they’re not exactly “formulas,” they are explanations of “how we did it” implying with firm control over any fleeting tendencies toward modesty that “that’s how you ought to do it.”  Practitioners filled with…

    As a long-time Grateful Dead fan, I have to say that I was advantaged in understanding how the Blown to Bits problem would affect digital media businesses.  You see, for years, the Dead had changed the business model of the music industry, choosing to use “albums” as a loss leader and choosing to make money on live concerts, playing some 2,300 concerts together, not to mention those done individually be band members. (Think:  Jerry Garcia at the Keystone Berkeley.) The Dead even had a “tapers” section at most concerts and sometimes could be heard literally stopping…

    I’m pretty busy this week so I was hoping not to dive into the Box S-1, but David Cummings’ excellent summary served only to whet, as opposed to satiate, my appetite. Perhaps it was the $168M FY14 operating loss.  Maybe it was the $380M in financing raised during the last three years.  Or the average quarterly burn rate of $23M.  But somehow, I got sucked in. I just had to know their CAC ratio.  Of course, it’s not going to be easy to calculate.  While they give us quarterly S&M expense, that’s only half the equation; we’re going to have a figure out…

    I once asked one of my board members which CEO ran the best board meetings across his portfolio companies.  His answer was, let’s call him, Jack.  Here’s what he said about him: Jack got the board deck out 3-4 days in advance of the board meeting Jack would call him — and every other board member — 2-3 days before each board meeting and walk through the entire deck and answer questions, taking maybe 2 hours to do so. Board meetings with Jack would go very quickly and smoothly because all the questions had been asked in advance. When I heard this, I thought, well, I…

    Last week, Alfresco was at the 2014 AIIM Conference in lovely Orlando, Florida. We were there talking about the Future of Work, not just in the abstract, but achieving it in today’s workplace. John Newton, one of our founders and CTO, hosted a roundtable discussion on the topic and gave an extremely energetic talk to an overflowing room. While attending AIIM every year seems excessive for some, I find it is very useful in gauging the evolving attitudes across the industry.

The design work includes important parts like user research, visual design, content, and information architecture. The build phase includes the heavy lifting of technical architecture, front end development, CMS customization, third party integrations, QA and deployment. Some kind of planning activities will typically precede both of these phases. Sometimes, agile-looking processes will mix it up by focusing on early prototyping and more rapid…

Your choices of large DAM Conferences are now limited since Createasphere DAM Conferences no longer exist as of December 2013. There are however some vendor specific DAM conferences throughout the year. Henry Stewart DAM NY is still the longest running and largest DAM Conference available in the DAM market today. What is going on at DAM NY 2014? On April 30, there are some pre-event tutorials available including: Fundamentals…
  • Digital Asset Management book by Elizabeth Keathley now available

    There is a new Digital Asset Management book coming out in late March 2014 written by Elizabeth Keathley.  Elizabeth decided to quit her full-time DAM job and commit herself to writing this book. Shortly afterward, I was asked to be the technical reviewer/editor on this book to review each chapter in draft form. Working together remotely, we spent a good few months working on this book. The book titled Digital Asset Management: Content Architectures, Project Management, and Creating Order out of Media Chaos is now available for sale online. If you are still clinging to the last…

    You may have read my call for a DAM Glossary from February 2013. Recently, Ralph Windsor started http://damglossary.org using a previously existing DAM Glossary. This publicly available website has no sponsors, is freely available, is as vendor neutral as we can hope for and allows users to append to this DAM Glossary (after registering). But the DAM Glossary is not yet complete. There are plenty of words, terms and definitions still missing. In order for the DAM community to benefit from this DAM glossary, we need to append these to the DAM Glossary. Append those missing…
  • Where can I find a list of Digital Asset Management Integrators and Implementers?

    Henrik de Gyor
    30 Sep 2013 | 2:00 am
    After listening to a recent webinar, I recall a few people asking me where they could find some Digital Asset Management (DAM) Integrators and implementers. You can find a few lists for DAM vendors (175+), including ratings, functionalities and other various offerings. However, when it comes to finding a matrix of all DAM vendors match up with X number of implementers and Y number of Integrators who can work well together, the search results happen to be ZERO (at least at the time this blog post was written). This could be be a dynamic matrix available online since there are so many…

    This year the AIIM Conference headed to sunny Orlando, with the organization that originally coined the term ECM now moving onto a new horse – Information Governance (IG). AIIM has often been accused of either being behind the times or, ironically, being too ahead of the game. That’s why the annual conference is so important. […]

Now apply that experience to the […]

    When thinking about the relationship between our organization’s customer service operations and the conversations taking place about our company on social media channels, it’s hard to overstate how truly connected they are. In our social-media savvy world, so many conversations about brands take place independent of the companies themselves, within channels and networks over which [...]

  • In 2014, Knowledge Management is an oxymoron!

    Louis Têtu
    18 Feb 2014 | 7:04 am
    Knowledge can’t be managed. Knowledge is everywhere, buried in the confines of the organization, within stovepipes of systems and silos, but also woven in the minds of people. In fact, it is people not systems who possess knowledge and decide on its relevance according to the context of what they are working on. But Knowledge [...]

  • Visualizing the impact

    David Hobbs
    22 Apr 2014 | 12:09 pm
    Teams frequently agree to digital strategies without understanding the impact of those agreements. The downside: these strategies often cannot be implemented or will not meet business goals. Qualitative illustrations of impact to confirm buy-in In general everyone has fairly highly honed skills for visualizing (and receiving the message of) the positive impact of changes, so here I will concentrate on visualizing the costs of making big changes as well as the disadvantages of not taking action. This isn’t about quantitative costs in the ROI sense, but costs in a more qualitative…
  • It's not about post-launch either: Principles of constant change

    David Hobbs
    22 Jan 2014 | 9:19 am
    From launch tunnel vision to constant change As an industry we focus way too much on big launches and redesigns. I'm certainly not new in saying that, and in fact in some ways it is almost cliche to note this. But I would like to go beyond that to both define some principles of constant change (in this article) and how to do stay focused during change (in my upcoming book Website Product Management: Keeping Focused During Change). First let's look at why we want to move away from tunnel vision on launches, and other ways of thinking about change on websites. Note: even when we do need…
  • What to do with that request to improve your website

    David Hobbs
    15 Jan 2014 | 1:40 pm
    Your site faces a constant stream of possible changes. How do you decide what to do? Let's look at the life of a requested website change (or download the one-page flowchart). The request itself Obviously there are lots of sources of possible change, but in this case we'll look at a requests for specific changes from a site user or backend content contributor (for example, to add personalization features to a page). One of the main things you want to do when evaluating the request is have a consistent way of considering whether to implement them. As is covered in the book Website…
  • Ongoing change: fast and slow

    David Hobbs
    25 Nov 2013 | 12:51 pm
    Just because the change would be easy to implement doesn't mean it should be done quickly [tweet this] When making changes to your web presence, some things should happen quickly, and some should happen slowly. Change that is routine and standardized should be fast -- for example, publishing a routine webpage update should happen quickly. But other changes should be more considered. If someone is requesting raw HTML access to their page so they can add a new feature to their web page (perhaps to use a new javascript library), then that exception is probably easy to provide. But when…
  • Cheer or jeer? Did that slick new website help?

    David Hobbs
    15 Oct 2013 | 10:09 am
    Question What’s a great way to have your company’s web presence spiral out of control? Answer Launching one-off sites. But from the rank-and-file to top executives usually applaud one-offs. Why? They are relatively easy to create. They can be massaged exactly how you want them, without worrying about existing structures, negotiating, etc. In other words, they can be created quickly and look great! They can even seem like a bright life boat against the backdrop of the huge ship that is the rest of your site. So what’s not to like? They do nothing to improve existing, core (if…

  • Four reasons to consider a centralized filing system

    rnepean@gmail.com
    21 Mar 2014 | 8:30 am
    To centralize or not to centralize? It is one of the most common questions in records management. While physically separate file collections can create extra work in terms of management and file retrieval, many records managers are reluctant to adopt a centralized system. Not only does it require a lot of work, it also has the potential to disrupt business activities. Despite these real and potential drawbacks, the benefits of a centralized file storage solution often outweigh the downsides. Each organization will have different needs, but the next time the question of centralization arises,…
